The two series are also designed for use in household and commercial furniture and furniture power distribution units per UL 962 and UL 962A. The expanded NEC Article 406.12 extends the requirement for tamper-resistant receptacles—designed to protect individuals (primarily children) from accidental shock resulting from the insertion of foreign objects—to preschools and elementary education facilities; business offices, corridors, waiting rooms in clinics, medical, dental offices, and outpatient facilities; to areas of occupant assembly, such as places of awaiting transportation, gymnasiums, skating rinks, auditoriums; and dormitories. The receptacles feature a UL recognized safety shutter system that prevents the insertion of foreign objects into a receptacle. The safety shutters will only open upon simultaneous insertion of two plug blades. Additional tests including Probe Test, Impact Test, Mechanical Endurance Test and Dielectric Voltage Withstand Test for Tamper Resistant Receptacles are included in UL 498. With the option of an added insulated wall between the L, N terminals, this series are also designed for use in Household and Commercial Furniture and Furniture Power Distribution Units (FPDUs). The insulation wall enables compliance according to the Spill Test, outlined in UL 962 Sec. 62, otherwise requiring manufacturers to design more complex and costly systems to comply.
